Does wearing a bra increase my chances of developing Breast Cancer?

Wearing a bra does not increse your chances of developing Breast Cancer but it does decrease the chances of early detection of Breast Cancer using the usual Mammogram screening. Its speculated that because of the support provided by using a bra, the breasts stay firmer and denser for longer and the calcifications which are seen in the breasts of a Breast Cancer patient on a mammogram are more difficult to detect. This delays the early detection of Breast Cancer on a mammogram.
